For many years the cassock and surplice has been one of the major symbols of Catholic Worship. The "altar boy" in black and white is even associated with the Mass in the popular imagination. These worthy accoutrements are most fitting for the dignity of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. Our servers at St. Patrick are now decked out in these traditional garments for our celebrations. Thanks to all of the many parishioners who generously donated the funds for the purchase of these beautiful cassocks and surplices. To see some of them, please visit the photo album.
